Thrombectomy is a game-changing treatment for stroke. It significantly reduces your chance of disabilities like paralysis, visual impairment and aphasia and in some cases even saves lives.  

Despite the brilliant efforts of stroke doctors, nurses, paramedics and their teams, a lack of staff, funding and resources means that whether you can have a thrombectomy depends on where you live or when you have your stroke. We want this to change.

Together we hope we can push for more action on thrombectomy, so that it’s available to every stroke patient who needs it. Share our suggested wording and image on your social channels to raise awareness of our open letter. The more people who sign the open letter, the more likely the government will take notice and take action.

Thrombectomy stroke treatment saves brains and changes lives. It significantly reduces your chance of disabilities like paralysis, visual impairment and aphasia and in some cases even saves lives. 

But thrombectomy isn’t available for everyone who needs it. The majority of people who could have thrombectomy miss out on this treatment completely because of where they live or when they have their stroke.    

The Stroke Association is calling for thrombectomy to be available to everyone who needs it, when they need it.
